Really don't know how to prevent it from happening at that situation, it may or maynot; however, one good thing is not to use any Al pulleys.

First of all, where is the IFMAR 2003 going to take place? And, how much will it cost me to sponsor the event, huh? Mr. V?

For the Rear Spring:

RED: Diam. 1.6X6.5*26.5
BLUE: Diam 1.7X6.5*26.5
GREEN: Diam 1.8X6.5*26.5

Correct me if I'm wrong, but I figure that the larger the diameter of the spring, the harder it is. Please confirm.
1.6 is equal to purple spring
1.7 is equal to light blue spring
1.8 is equal to grey spring

There could be difference in progressive action but i am not sure about it.

Cash is surely the best, just like the old saying...
there should have a credit card charge but not as high as 5%, I think Mr Lam is charging 3% something.

that's it.

by the way just in case some snakers or ass o driver question about the car's performance for needing so many hop ups.

the car performs excellent out of stock box with the stock setting.

there are only a few hop up that is really required to boost further up the performance such as
kawahara rear sway bar, engine brace
mugen CVD (front) and alloy hex
